    Does anybody know of a manufacturer who makes these? With the pup flipped. I know some soap bars have a P under the cover, but are some reverse?

    Are you asking for a P/J with the P reversed position in a 5 string with J in the neck or p in the bridge? Jackson makes the first bass I mentioned.

    Pat Wilkins makes this one. It is picture in the very capable hands of Bryant Siono, who used it touring the world with Jennifer Lopez.

    I think Sadowsky makes one as well.

    standard P/J setup but with the P pup flipped? All Sandberg's P/J and P/MM 5 stringers have reverse P-pups

    EMG 40P5s are reverse P's under the hood and could be paired with an EMG 40 with a single coil for the bridge.

    A jackson/Charvel Fusion V is your best bet

    Made. They only use EMG humbuckers, now.

    That being said, you can get Spector 5 string bolt-ons with a reverse P/J setup.

    Alright, could we narrow this a touch further, to 24 frets and a 35" scale?

    In my case (same requirements, except 34", although 35" would have been available), it was cheaper to get one hand-built by ACG than buying a regular production model.
